I did run number two of week one of couch-to-5k earlier today. It’s eight intervals of the 60 seconds run and 90 seconds walk; I couldn’t remember last running-related post. This time I managed all the intervals. I think the trouble last time was that I was running too hard, and my body’s not used to it. I went a little gentler today, and managed to complete the run without feeling like I might die afterwards. I feel so pleased with myself. I have one more set of the 60/90 intervals, which I will probably do on Sunday, then I’m going to take on week two.
I actually really enjoyed the run today too. It’s lovely to be outside and have the feeling of doing something positive for myself. There’s a quite a pretty cycle path through trees and by the river about a five minute walk from my house, which is ideal running territory. Nice, flat paths, away from the road and I have something pretty to look at to distract me.
I’m heading home for easter next weekend, which I’m quite looking forward to. I haven’t seen my mum for so long, as we both usually work weekends now, so I’m looking forward to some mum-time. It’ll be nice to see some old friends too. I’m hoping the weather will hold out so I can keep some running motivation up when I don’t have quite such an ideal running route to get me out the door.
Anyone got anything exciting planned for their Easter break?
